Adam Lambert tweeted some big news today!

His next album will be called Trespassing and is set to be released Spring 2012.  There is a track on the album by the same name and it was written by Adam and Pharrell.

Adam, who has an Executive Producer credit on Trespassing, has been co-writing with a slew of collaborators, including Pharrell Williams, Claude Kelly, Greg Wells, Sam Sparro, Ali Tamposi and more. Famed producer and musician, Nile Rogers recently dropped by to lay down guitar tracks on a tune.

The new album compared to his 2009 debut will be “a little more personal, I’m doing a lot more of the writing myself, it’s a bit more contemporary sounding, I think, a bit more ‘now’. And I think it’ll hopefully get people to maybe try not judging a book by its cover.”

Adam teased that he’ll tweet news on the single tomorrow

    That’s an interesting title. I like it!

    Doesn’t look like they is a specific release date set yet…unless he’s keeping that info for Saturday :)

     He is the biggest tease ever, OMG.

    So glad to have an album title!!!  Trespassing – going where you’re not allowed, breaking boundaries…I like it!!!

    Smart to get it out there before the BFM bastard album drops Monday.

    LOVE IT. Can’t wait for the other announcement tomorrow.  Probably single title?

    What a great name for the album – Trespassing. Can’t wait for the album. I loved FYE and 99% of the songs on it.  I hope that there is the odd slow or ballad type of song, but it doesn’t matter.  I even like his fast upbeat tempo songs.

    I don’t think that Adam has the same approach as David C who I also like. Adam has been pretty visable and the EMA probably helped also. Adam has never been under the radar.  I think Adam is probably in a bit of a better position for his album. Hopefully when he releases, it won’t be as busy as November.

  • mmb

    They likely do have a specific release date set now ( or at least a range of a few weeks). But they wouldn’t announce that 3-4 months in advance. Adam said march in an interview last night and Corson said Feb/march to THR a few weeks ago. So march looks highly likely

  • Anonymous

    No. I’m flailing also.  His FYE was one of the album in which I liked 99% of the songs. Most cds that I buy, I end up only liking one or two songs.  But I can’t wait for the album.

    Yeah, I bet he wouldn’t have announced it this soon if not for BFM coming out on Monday.  Good plan!  Also, I love the title.  It makes me think of him starting out the gate from idol wanting to be there for our entertainment and through the course of two years has felt more like he’s #TRESPASSING.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    The title is intriguing.  It’s interesting that Adam has an EP credit at this early stage of his career.  Looking forward to the new single.  Just hoping that there are no further delays.

  • Anonymous

    I remember Jamesinrehab tweeting after the listening party that he gave Adam his input about single release and one of the tracks stood out above the rest. Trespassing must be it, and since Adam keeps mentioning Pharrel first when talking about who he is working with, it stands to reason that it’s a killer track.

  • Anonymous

    reportedly some time in January. Maybe Adam will tweet the official scoop on that tomorrow when he reveals the title of the single

  • Anonymous

    It was mentioned that Pharrell has more than one credit on the album though.  I think it was 2 songs, but could be more.

  • Anonymous

    Since Adam Tweeted about the single Trespassing — it would be odd if he tweet that was the lead single tomorrow. My bet is that it is a different track — but the lead single could easily be the track that Jamesinrehap tweeted about and be a different track than Trespassing.

    We’ll know tomorrow.

    yeah since Adam gave out the info about the single the album title is from, it’s unlikely that is the lead single.

    Oh, i didn’t mean that Trespassing would be the lead single, just that I think that is the one JIR liked the most. I agree that I think the title track is going to be a different one. If he has a few good singles on the album ( which seems likely from what has been buzzed about)- I would save the best track for #2 or #3. Especially if it would make a good summer song.

  • Anonymous

    What happened to this summer, novermber, early 2012??? Adam I love you to death but this approach didnt do much for David C (whom I also love)…

    I think all aritsts get excited, but I really do think he planned for this November and the legal issues and perhaps the change in direction in the summer altered his plans. As for releasing in spring, I guess it will depend on the single, as it always is.

    I assume he means spring as in March, which is when he and the RCA exes said it would be out most recently. I think it’s much more definitive than anything else in the past.

  • Anonymous

    Yes! There is a song on #TRESPASSING by the same name… I wrote it with Pharrell.

     It’s just an average day in the Idol world when some get good news, some get bad news, and some get no news at all.  It is a little sad, but Danny will be okay and find a place that fits him better, I’m sure.

    In the mean time, Adam fans are going to celebrate one step closer to new music.

    Seems like all positive comments about this title Trespassing.  Contrary to FYE which seemed to antagonize a lot of fans.  Fans who were envisioning a more ‘fierce’ title I think.  This one lands perfectly – not conjuring up the ‘campy’ at all.

  • Anonymous

    I’m assuming Spring means sometime between March 21st and June 21st. 

    No surprise. January is a horrible time to release music. February is better so maybe the single will drop by then. Again it depends when the album is released – early or late spring.

    All the quick buzz is ramping up the excitement level even more! It’s not surprising to me in ways, since there was a good deal of buzz around every little tidbit so far (like when he sang OOL), but it still catches me a little off guard. 

    I have a feeling this whole ride for this album is going to be fun.

  • Anonymous

    I also enjoyed FYE alot. Wasn’t fond of the album cover. I looked at it again and No. Still not fond of the cover, but the cover is not important as the music. There was a lot of great songs on FYE. Looking forward to enjoying Trepassing just as much. But I’m curious as to the album cover now.  Especially didn’t he shave his sides off for the cover shoot?

  • Anonymous

    Didn’t Adele release her album in January?  Didn’t seem to hurt her any.

    Adele is one of the few exceptions that sold amazingly well in January/Febuary (along with Kesha). I for one am glad Adam is not releasing the album then as statistically January has the weakest sales of any month of the year and early February is not much better. Singles do not follow this trend, though, so releasing a single then shouldn’t cause any concerns. 

    If the single is good, though, it won’t matter when it or the album is released.

    He did shave the side pretty soon before the shoot, yes. His current avi on twitter right now is likely from that shoot, actually (it may have even been confirmed that it was, but I’m not sure). If the shoot is anything like the FYE cover shoot though, then he’ll have played around with a lot of different looks, including his hair. I believe the pictures of his with kind of a pirate hat, the incense sticks, and long hair that was in the calendar was from that shoot.

    I see Adele dropped her album in February. That is a good month to release an album (Valentine’s Day is a big plus) so I’m a little surprised Adam’s album isn’t dropping then. They probably want more time to get the single up the charts.

    Again, I’m not sure what Spring 12 means. Could be March, could be May. Maybe they’ll reveal the month soon.

    Actually in this case it makes sense if he is going to the AMAs. Assuming he walks the red carpet, it gives him talking points and gets the info into the media. If it was any other week, I’d agree with you.

    He’s been talking about the album for half a year. It’s about time he talked about the single. Adam’s fans are lucky that there’s something to finally talk about.

    Wow! I can’t wait to hear the new single. He sounds like he’s excited and ready to start the craziness all over again with a new album and hopefully a world tour. I can’t wait to see how his music is received by people around the world.

    Yeah.. but you go into the holidays and its kind of like a time warp. Days and weeks start to move quickly. If the single release is in early Jan, then to me it makes sense to front load at least an announcement before the holiday shuffle.

    Days and weeks start to move quickly. If the single release is in early Jan, then to me it makes sense to front load at least an announcement before the holiday shuffle.

    Two other reasons for releasing the title(s) now: to counter BFM (which is BAMF of him) and b/c he’s just really excited about it. 

    One of my favorite things about Adam is how much he loves and is genuinely excited about music.

    OMG! *late flail* holy crap look at everything that happened while I was out getting shit done! An album called Trespassing, oooh intriguing I like it, a song called Trespassing co-written by Adam and Pharrell, yessss! More news tomorrow about the single oh man how am I gonna sleep?!

    And to top it all off, Adam in the audience at the AMA’s which hopefully gets us red carpet pics and interviews!

    I love today so much!

    I’m guessing Adam is just excited to share this news with his fans. Friday night is not optimum time to release info for buzz.  Weekends in general aren’t the best time unless you’re just excited and don’t care about the logistics, etc.

    this is why I thought he was releasing on the weekend it would give media outlets time to get a story together for early morning Monday.  Which counteracts any of the promo BFM has claiming to be his new music.

    That’s true. It doesn’t seem as if Adam’s ever had a full media publication behind him supporting his music, it’s always just one person from a newssource raving about him. And if we ever read about him, it’s always from one of a few of the same people who write about him frequently.
    This time around(w the second album), I’m hoping to read reviews from different people- other than the public ott, ‘glamberts’ who loved Adam’s debut album.

    Man, Heidi Klum would show up to the opening of a door.  Starting to think about Lambert in that way, too.

    He seemed to be doing a lot more of that back in late 2009 – early 2010, showing up to things like the SAG awards, and doing the fashion correspondent bit for the Grammy Awards.  Once he got busy with his tour,  of course, that stopped.  He didn’t even make the Season 9 Finale.  

    After the tour ended, he kept rather quiet.  He went to the RuPaul Drag Race Premiere (and Finale party) in support of Sutan/Raja.  He attended the Season 10 Finale.  Other than that, it was mainly events that he had a pressing reason to attend — such as the NextNewNow Awards, where he presented, the Grammy Awards, where he was nominated, and the Equality Awards, where he was honored.  

    It would be cool if he was presenting at the AMAs, and even better if he was performing, but this is probably pure red carpet PR.  Because now he can talk about the album!  (small squee!)

  • Fullmoon

    Well, Heidi’s husband is Seal so I’m sure she has a lot of cache at these types of music events. I love that Adam will be sitting near her. I hope she has pics for us. With Kelly Clarkson performing you know Adam will be on his feet flailing for her like last time. It is also normal for artists that are about to release an album showing up at these events it gives them the opportunity to talk about their work.  All good. I want to see a pic of Bruno and Adam together, love their little bromance on twitter the other day. Adam has an aisle seat. Could that be for easy access for maybe presenting.

  • Anonymous

    Hmm, I actually haven’t seen Adam at much until recently and they were places he had very good reason to be. The EMA”s where he was performing with Queen, a friends bday party he was invited to, and the Out 100 where he was an honoree. Not his fault these events all happened in a row and that he was a desired guest. Much worse to be left off the list in my opinion.

  • mmb

    Adam had a lot of print media coverage in era 1- not just the typical idolionie sources. He got a fantastic review from the Associated Press that ran in hundreds of newspapers; spin magazine gave him a good review; rolling stone continued to cover him; he was in print articles in major UK newspapers; what other sources should be covering him but have not?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_UITYTUSGL7IK7WLFFDXXRYP7GA Falfor

    Nele621, I don’t suspect many of the idols would be able to afford to go to the AMA’s. I remember someone saying, that if you were not nominated or you were not a presenter, that it cost $5000 or so to go. Now Heidi Klum, she can afford that. I guess if you have it, flaunt it.

    Maybe she likes watching shows? She’s got one of her own, so meeting people is good for business.

    Even more logical with Lambert. Even if he didn’t have anything to promote, he’s a performer, it’s his job to know the performing business and know how other people perform. It’s good for him as an artist to be seen amongst other artists.

    Artists are either short-sighted or lazy if they think success will come to them on their own. Adam seems to fully realize that it requires effort which doesn’t stop after the Idol finale.

    Plus it’s exposure for him and for his upcoming single and album.  Seriously, there’s no way to turn it into a negative … really there isn’t.  I’m happy that Adam stays on the radar.  We’ve seen what happens to Idols who don’t enjoy the limelight and who virtually disappear between albums.  I’m happy that Adam is smart enough to know that it’s important to stay visible.  And I admit I’m selfish … I never have enough Adam on my TV!

    Yes, he does have something to promote.  It may be four months or more before his album is released, but it would be stupid not to start promoting it more, and reminding people who he is, and letting them know that he’s about to release music. I’ve been saying that others who are working on albums, and who will be releasing them around the same time in 2012, need to start doing the same thing.  The AMA are a huge televised and media covered event, so network, but more importantly, get face time with all of the media outlets.

    Adam has made a lot of friends in the industry, so being at the American Music Awards makes sense to me, especially if you have an album coming out in the new year. I have a feeling this album is going to be a huge success, I mean just look at who has contributed to it. Lots of heavyweights from the industry. I don’t think I have been so excited about an album in a long time.

    Adam stated in an interview last night at the OUT awards that the album would be released in March.

    If he was just going to be in attendance, I doubt that Halperin would be playing it the way she is. I assume that he’s doing somewhat more than that.

    As to why he’s going, he’s got a single and album coming out in a couple of months. You don’t just start promoting a single and album the week before they’re released.

     Adam does have a reason to be there. He’s in the industry, it’s an industry event. Neither he, nor anyone else needs any other reason than that to be there. lol

    Gosh, if I only went to the places I had “something to do with,” I’d spend my life at my job and my house.  I don’t write or produce movies, so I couldn’t go to those; I don’t cook or write reviews for restaurants, so I’d have no business going to any of those, etc., etc.  I  do prepare a lot of meals, so I might have a rightful place at the grocery store….  I still maintain, though, that it’s part of a musician’s job to attend industry events.  It’s good PR for them, for one thing, but PR isn’t always just about overt self-promotion.  Sometimes it’s about being a team player, which inadvertently boosts image and facilitates networking.

    I just re-read Adam and Shirley’s tweets and got excited all over again! New music plus another weekend of red carpet pictures and interviews. What is his makeup going to be like? What about his hair? What is he going to wear? Will the medges make an appearance? 

    So many burning questions!

    YeahRight
    I don’t even know what this Beg For Mercy is.  If he doesn’t want these “casual fans” to be confused — twitter?  He’s been using that for everything else.

    He has in the past but I am sure do to legal reason’s can’t talk about it anymore.  Beg For Mercy btw is old demo’s from like 6 years ago that they are now releaseing since Adam became successful.  After the rumors of Adam having new music out in October.  They announced a single for this cd touted at Adam Lambert’s new music.  They used any music tweet of Adam’s and twisted it to make it sound like he was Talking about BFM.  There was also a rumor of Adam having his cd out around Thanksgiving and low and behold BFM the cd is being released this Monday.  They have places banners in iTunes all over the world calling it Adam’s “NEW” music not once mentioning it is 6 year old work.  Same with print adds.

    If he was just going to be there why would they have a piece of poster board with his picture On it?

    Well, as much as I would like it to, the world doesn’t revolve around Adam. It’s entirely possible that she was just talking about scoop in general. Before she tweeted Adam’s seat pic she also tweeted Katy Perry’s seat pic, so she’s not just covering him.

  • Anonymous

    Because everyone has an assigned seat. You can’t just sit where you want. And for the purposes of the telecast, it is important that the director and camera people will know where everyone is sitting, in case they need or want to put them on camera. It wouldn’t look good if, for instance, Beyonce won an award and the camera people and director didn’t know where she was sitting.

    “Trespassing” is a terrific title for Adam’s album – edgy and dangerous.

    Any chance “Queen” will be there also?

    I know, wishful thinking.  

    I would really like to hear “Who Wants To Live Forever/The Show Must Go On” medley to end the show.

    Okay, back to reality.

    Looking forward to the album, but right now I’m indifferent to the title.

  • sdmama

    I know, I know! They said that they will do it again. Big tease… If Adam is performing, without single not dropping yet, this could have been the encore performance on this side of the pond.  But AMA is not honoring Queen, so this would be me asking for too much.  I do feel deprived of Under Pressure.  Did they rehearsed it at all? May we have it at AMA? 

    I think Trespassing is good title.  Short, easy to remember, and we can speculate to no end what it implies. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ashetalia-Staatz/100001792695528 Ashetalia Staatz

    Can’t believe Queen would do both emas and amas. Also can’t believe that they would be a “surprise” act. ALSO can’t believe that Adam’s just sitting there is newsworthy, so gonna assume he’ll be doing more, but who can tell. Dazed and confused!

    I like the title. It goes well with Outlaws of Love, equally kitschy.

    Well, thank goodness we solved that plaguing mystery about why on earth Lambert would be attending the AMAs! Heh. I just hate that Halperin saw fit to post that less than stellar vocal performance again.  Yikes. Adrenalin is a killer.

    I’ll admit interest in what the title Trespassing will mean once we get the music. Right now, I’m not sure I love it, but only because I’m not able to tell how clever, poignant, telling, edgy, or heart-breaking it is. :-)

    Everyone has a bad day, luckily it’s extremely rare for Adam. I’m intrigued by the title if only b/c I’m thinking of it in context of his song Outlaws of Love. It seems that it is still going to be a very personal album if you link the song and album title. Extremely excited whatever the case.

    For those Adam Lambert fans asking & without giving too much away I don’t think Trespassing will b 1st single. It was 1 of 3 options….cont

    … It was my personal preference out of the 3 but think the label favoured a safer & more commercial option. #adamlambert #TRESPASSING

    And no. None of the 3 options were a ballad. I’d day 2 uptempo & 1 mid – uptempo. Now I’ll shut up in case I’ve said 2 much #adamlambert

    Its been almost two weeks solid of good Adam news, which is very welcome after all the BFM stuff. I’m with smeggingnuts on the new cd announcements steering clear of BFM. People don’t read nowadays; they scan. If a person sees a title mentioned in an article with a new cd headline, they might jump to a conclusion.

    I love the track-by-track approach to the new cd that John Kearns is taking. A great way to build the release and keep the discussion going.

    I’m betting that the cd will release around St. Patrick’s Day. Adam told us to wear green in one of his tweets quite a while ago.

    So much for the ‘second era’ being great. The leading single is a demo that most of the fanbase has heard and got a lackluster reaction at best. I mean, all the star writers on the album, and he(and his ‘team’) go with this as the first single? A hookless, monotonous melody of a song?

    Really?  As a huge Adam fan, I visit a lot of sites, and just about every comment I read about that demo was positive.  It’s cool and catchy (the chorus has been stuck in my head since first hearing the demo months ago), IMO, and Adam will give it his own flair.  He’ll sound amazing singing the song’s falsettos.

    I’m more bothered by the fact that the song has such a recycled melody. It just sounds too ‘familiar’. How is it going to give Adam his own ‘identity’ as an artist? This era is crucial to establishing who he is as an artist. This song won’t do it.
    And no, not everyone dislikes the single, but it’s received a very mixed reaction on twitter and the message boards.

    Adam’s not going to be doing a karaoke of the demo, I’m sure of it.  Although I actually really like the demo, I’m confident Adam will take the song to new places.  The lead single has to be radio friendly, that’s a fact, and this song is certainly that.

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    So, if first single is “Better Than I Know Myself” I guess that would be considered the mid-tempo?  If it’s the same Claude Kelly song that’s up on YT, then I’d have to say mid-tempo.  Of course, we don’t know the arrangement that will be on Adam’s version if it’s the same song, which I believe it very well could be.

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    The only thing I question is “if” the lead single is the Claude Kelly demo, why would they choose a song that Adam has no writing collab on?  I’m confused by that.

    Also, I do like the song, but if I listen to the Kelly demo too often, I’ll be tired of it by the time Adam drops his version.  I’m sure Adam’s rendition will be killer, but I just don’t get why not a song he wrote.  Just sayin’ …

    Thoughts, anyone?

    Adam is nothing if not a genius at reinterpretation.  His TOMT and IICHY on AI are testament to that.  If this is the single, you can be sure it will be very different from this.

    By now, maybe he does have songwriting credits on it.  If he changed it enough, his name may well be added to the list of writers.  Just a guess.

    If this is one of the 3 songs that DJ in London heard and loosely described (and he said the single choice had been narrowed down to those three), then it’s either going to be uptempo or mid-tempo.  

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    I think it makes a lot of sense for Adam to go with one of the big guns – Claude Kelly – for the first single.  Although the strategy didn’t work with FYE, it’s a better gamble than a song Adam wrote for the first single IMO

    No, which is why I used the words “the current arrangement”.  In my mind at least, those words implied that the arrangement would need to be changed in order for the song to be radio friendly.  I’ve said the same thing in all three threads on this board that I’ve replied in in regards to this songs.  My first post stated that I suspected that they would tinker with the arrangement.  In its current state it doesn’t fit Adam, doesn’t fit the pop format, and it is a little dated.

    I know marchle.. I have no idea what was Adam thinking. Taking Claude Kelly’s song that’s hookless and monotonouse melody for his overhype Adam#2… but I’m glad that you’re happy with it and can laugh about it. LOL 

    I think it is very radio friendly add to that Adam’s beautiful voice.. I just couldn’t wait to hear his take on the song #BETTERTHANIKNOWMYSELF

    That’s how most hashtag trends work. It wouldn’t have gotten high enough to be noticed by other people if fans hadn’t trended it there in the first place. Even trends people hate, they help trend b/c they use them to discuss how much they dislike them. Lol. Any attention is good attention.

    Well, their parent’s aren’t paying attention because they’re too busy trying to trend Lambert’s song.  At least the mothers are.

    Love the Title.  It is a good one for Adam.  I hope the cd has some rock songs.

    Yay BTIKM! I loved the demo when fans first ninja’d it out when he tweeted lyrics! I mean, I had to use my imagination and think about Adam singing it, but the melody is beautiful, and I could completely relate to the lyrics. 

    I have to disagree that the song has no hook though, I deleted the demo youtube out of my bookmarks after a couple days because the song was stuck in my head and I didn’t want the memory to overshadow the real thing from Adam himself when it came out.

    I agree. I love the song and it does seem to have a good hook. I’m sure Adam is going to sing it great. But I do love the lyrics.  I can’t image it being sung faster, but I’m sure that he will surprise us. I didn’t think that Sleepwalker could be sung accoustic, but, wow, Adam did a great job on that song.. Slowing it down.. There was a link in the thread many pages ago – I think it was for a radio station in Germany.  Anyway, looking forward to how the song sounds..
